DEF LEPPARD have released a video of facts surrounding their 1981 album “High ‘N’ Dry”. 

GREAT WHITE is getting hammered on social media for performing a show last week with no masks or social distancing. People online are comparing it to the tragic nightclub fire during their gig in Rhode Island in 2003. For the record, original singer JACK RUSSELL is NOT in the band anymore. He has his own version called Jack Russell’s Great White. And he is VERY pro-mask and pro-social distancing. Guitarist MARK KENDALL IS in the version of Great White that played this past Thursday, and was also onstage when the fire broke out in ’03. 

DEEP PURPLE released another new song, “Nothing at All,” from Whoosh!,  their forthcoming album.
